Editor's Viewpoint: Our wonder women
It is an acknowledged fact that the role of women in society is often undervalued. This newspaper, through its annual Woman of the Year awards, attempts to redress the balance by highlighting the achievements of women in a wide variety of roles.
Just look at the extraordinary women who fill our Woman of the Year supplement today. Every one of them feels they are just ordinary people doing their ordinary jobs, but they are being modest. Every woman entered for an award is an inspiring example of how they have changed lives, made their communities better places to live in, or simply have always been there when someone else needed help. We salute those women and, indeed, all the women of Northern Ireland who we never take for granted.
